Shire of Manjimup

The Shire of Manjimup is the hub of the timber industry in the South West region. In recent years the volume of hardwood production has decreased as a result of the State's Regional Forest Agreement, addressing the harvesting of native jarrah and other species. The processing of hardwood is now focused primarily on value adding.

Plantations are becoming a significant part of timber production in the area. The total volume of bluegum woodchips exported through the Port of Bunbury in 2008-09 was 1.1 million tonnes. More timber industry statistics.

The local area is host to many vineyards, horticulture and farming operations.

The retail sector is also a significant employer, with the township of Manjimup being the regional centre of the Warren Blackwood area, which encompasses Manjimup and the surrounding Shires of Nannup, Bridgetown Greenbushes and Boyup Brook.
